North Walpole 

Many extra books were borrowed from the Bookmo- 
bile, and an exchange with Charlestown of light fiction, 
detective and Westerns was carried on. 

Through the Sheiling Trust, which is administered 
by the State Library, we are purchasing a number of 
books, together with Charlestown, Alstead, Langdon and 
Acworth. These are books of unusual interest which, un- 
der ordinary circumstances we might not be able to afford 
to buy separately. 

Close co-operation with our School is being main- 
tained with the valuable help of our librarian. Over one 
hundred books on varied subjects were borrowed from the 
State Library. 

The Committee wishes to express its thanks for the 
many gifts of books received during the year. 

MARY H. VAN DEMARK, Chairman.

REPORT OF THE TOWN HISTORY 
COMMITTEE 



Progress is continuing on the Town History, al- 
though of necessity it is, of course, slow progress. The 
hours that can be devoted to it are not as many as those 
who are actively working on it would desire; and research 
work is by its very nature a slow process of digging. When 
the book is finished, we hope to have a history of interest 
and of value. 

The basic groundwork has reached the stage where 
the outlook becomes more encouraging. Our first aim was 
to construct a map that would show all the roads that 
have been built in the town with the houses and cellar- 
holes along with them. This map to be of any use must 
show the old roads along with the new and have a key that 
will make the map intelligent to us of today and to our 
descendants in the years to come. We also needed a map 
to show the early divisions of the land in the town. We 
are glad to report that this is nearing completion. 

Work has been started on the genealogical section 
of the book. This statistical work requires detailed ac- 
curacy on the vital statistics of each family, and any in- 
formation of that nature would be gratefully received from 
every family in town. 

Often in delving into the past a great deal of time 
can be saved by consulting with those who remember the 
past, or who have had a life interest in historical facts. 
One to whom we owe a great deal is Mrs. Edith Tiffany 
who has generously turned over to us her accumulated 
work of the past and who still devotes many hours of her 
time to the work. Her help has been invaluable. Mrs. 
Marion Weymouth has been another whose memory and 
generosity in sharing it with us has been of the greatest 
assistance. We mention these two, but we could list many 



75 

others to whom we are grateful for the help they have 
given. 

Martha Frizzell is to be congratulated on the way she 
has approached the writing of this history and on her 
accomplishments to date. Under her direction the work 
is going forward steadily and efficiently. We are fortunate 
to have the use of her experience. However, experience 
and know-how do not go far in compiling a history unless 
there is material with which to work. Many of you may 
have such material in your attics stored away in trunks. 
We hope you will share it with the Town History Com- 
mittee.

Chairman, Town History Committee

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Board and Citizens of Walpole: 

I herewith submit my annual report as your super- 
intendent of schools: 

Survival and success in the years ahead will be in- 
fluenced to a large extent by the choices we make in re- 
gard to what we as a people consider to be valuable. The 
support given to the educational program in a community 
is a reflection of the value placed on education by its 
people. 

Young people soon discover what their elders really 
value. 



89 

More than financial support of the school program is 
needed. There is a need for cooperative effort of parents, 
citizens and teachers to promote a climate in all phases 
of a youngster's life that will encourage and demand the 
best that he or she is capable of doing. The help and in- 
fluence of parents is needed to aggressively support the 
school's efforts to promote excellence of performance. 

The committees that were working on the Oral Lan- 
guage Arts Syllabus as a follow-up of the 1957 Workshop 
completed their outlines; syllabi were adopted and placed 
in use this year for grades one through twelve. 

The Language Arts Workshop held this year placed 
emphasis on the written program. Miss Helen O'Leary, 
Associate Professor of Education at the University cf 
Massachusetts was the keynote speaker and principal con- 
sultant. Other consultants contributing to the success of 
the Workshop were Miss Marie Capron, Supervisor of Stu- 
dent Teaching at Keene Teachers College; Miss Amy Mayo, 
Educational Consultant for the American Book Company 
and Mr. Normand Pacquette, Head of the English Depart- 
ment at Stevens High School, Claremont, N.H. 

Committees are working to complete a Written Lan- 
guage Arts Syllabus for grades one through twelve and 
it is hoped that it will be completed by the end of the 
school year. 

Mathematics and Science teachers conducted a three- 
day workshop at the same time the Language Arts Work- 
shop was in progress. This group studied mathematics 
teaching methods and procedures and are currently work- 
ing on a mathematics syllabus for grades seven and eight. 

It is difficult to keep budgets from increasing in a 
situation where costs continue to rise and the number of 
pupils is also increasing. We do without some things that 
would improve the educational program. To include them 
would mean additional increases in the budget, however, 
the omissions are such that no major difficulty is expect- 
ed. The major increase is in teacher salaries. Part of this 
increase is due to the addition of one-half of a teacher's 
time to take the additional session of kindergarten, part 



90 

is due to the need of an additional teacher whose time will 
be utilized partly in Art classes, remedial work and to re- 
lieve a probable schedule and overcrowding difficulty in 
high school classes. These raises will result in the Walpole 
average salary for 1959-60 being approximately $100. more 
than the state average for 1958-59. The comparison is on 
a state wide basis. However, the salaries in nearby com- 
munities are those with which we have our principal com- 
petition and these for the most part are higher than the 
state average. Even though substantial raises are planned 
we will still be in the position of being below the average 
for the state as other districts are giving raises and these 
will increase the state average for 1959-60. 

The teacher shortage which gives no indication of 
improving places prospective teachers in a position that 
allows them to be selective. The salary, teacher load, loca- 
tion of the community, what the community has to offer 
in terms of social activities, shopping facilities, and trans- 
portation are a few of their considerations. If these factors 
are questionable then the amount of compensation be- 
comes a deciding factor. 

Next year is the first year of full foreign language and 
mathematics programs as planned two years ago. This 
change means a realignment of the subjects being taught 
by various teachers and also subjects being selected by 
pupils. This means that there is a need for a part time 
high school teacher that can be met by using part of the 
time of the additional teacher mentioned previously. 

It is undoubtedly a hardship to pay the taxes neces- 
sary to provide the means to insure a good educational 
program. However, it is doubtful that there is any better 
way of insuring that progress will be made and that we can 
be assured that our way of life will be maintained. 

Mrs. Carlene D. Enderson replaced Mrs. Anne La- 
mothe as a fifth grade teacher. Mrs. Enderson received her 
degree from Plymouth Teachers College and formerly 
taught in Littleton, N.H. Miss Elizabeth Jason replaced 
Mr. Richard Lamerand as Social Science teacher. Miss 
Jason received her degree from the University of Massa- 



91 

chusetts and did her practice teaching in Belmont, Massa- 
chusetts. Mrs. Arlene M. Kathan replaced Mrs. Elizabeth 
Staples as a second grade teacher. Mrs. Kathan is a grad- 
uate of Castleton Teachers College and formerly taught 
in Williamstown, Vermont. Miss Marie C. Ludgate replac- 
ed Mr. Nils Peterson as a sixth grade teacher. Miss Lud- 
gate received her degree from Keene Teachers College and 
did her practice teaching in Keene, N.H. Mr. Richard T. 
McCarthy is an additional teacher in the area of Social 
Science, Mathematics, and also assists in physical educa- 
tion and coaching. Mr. McCarthy received his degree from 
Plymouth Teachers College. Mr. Anthony J. Rando replac- 
ed Mr. Roy Miner and Miss Rosemarie Niles as music su- 
pervisor. Mr. Rando received his degree from the New 
England Conservatory of Music and did his practice teach- 
ing in Maiden, Mass. Mr. Sheldon S. Sawyer replaced Mr. 
Raymond Presby as Vocational Agriculture teacher. Mr. 
Sawyer received his degree from the University of New 
Hampshire and did his practice teaching in Keene, N.H. 
Mrs. Diane B. Tolis replaced Mrs. Elizabeth Chickering as 
a first grade teacher. Mrs. Tolis received her degree from 
Plymouth Teachers College and formerly taught in Bed- 
lin, Conn. 

Increased enrollment resulted in our receiving 
$1,423.20 State Foundation Aid this year. This amount 
was used to reduce the amount to be raised by taxation. 

At the time this is being written information is still 
not available as to the action that will be taken by the 
State Board of Education in regard to whether or not 
North Walpole ninth grade pupils will be assigned to at- 
tend the Walpole High School in 1959-1960. If the North 
Walpole high school pupils do attend the Walpole High 
School additional building facilities will be needed much 
sooner than originally anticipated. 

At the time the six-room elementary school was built 
in the Village, having a kindergarten was not included 
in the plans. The result has been that a room intended 
for use to take care of high school increased enrollment 
has been used for a first grade room to allow kindergarten 



92 

to be held in the new elementary school. This room is 
definitely needed for high school use this coming year. 
The temporary solution is to divide a room in the new 
elementary building and use it to house the divisions of 
the smallest class in grades one to three which now ap- 
pears to be the first grade. 

At the time of building the small elementary school 
and doing alterations in the larger building it was known 
that the cafeteria needed to be expanded. However, the 
expense of doing this was postponed. 

There is also a need for expansion of our shop facil- 
ities which has been mentioned in previous reports. The 
shop problem at present is in the area of the seventh and 
eighth grades and it is planned to have shop for only the 
eighth grade next year. There is also a question as to 
which subjects will be better to offer for our pupils to meet 
their needs — Vocational Agriculture or Industrial Arts. 
Music needs a room where it will not disturb other classes. 
All of these needs cannot be met at once. The first step I 
would recommend is to take care of the boys' vocational 
problem, the need for more high school space and a music 
room and postpone, if possible, the expansion of the caf- 
eteria until such a time as the second unit of the elemen- 
tary building can be built. 

There are high school pupils who are capable of tak- 
ing additional subjects who are not availing themselves 
of the opportunity. There are those who have been unable 
to meet the standards required to take and continue with 
this opportunity program. It is my considered judgement 
that the value of the educational advantages of taking on 
more work and really calling on the so-called latent abil- 
ity is being missed or avoided by too many of our pupils. 

The principals' reports cover changes made in their 
respective schools, however, I would like to report that 
major improvements have been and are being made in 
English, Guidance, Mathematics, Science and foreign lan- 
guages and a start made in the field of Art. The pilot el- 
ementary science program in North Walpole has develop- 
ed aids that are being used in other schools in the Super- 



93 

visory Union and the present plans of an enrichment pro- 
gram for elementary grades at the Walpole Village School 
has similar possibilities.

REPORT OF PRINCIPAL 
NORTH WALPOLE SCHOOL 



Mr. Elliott W. Keach 
Superintendent of Schools 
Walpole, New Hampshire 
Dear Sir: 

I submit herewith my annual report as Principal of 
North Walpole School. 

SCHOLARSHIP 

Faculty meetings this year have been devoted to the 
new science program, started this year in grades one 
through six. Topics such as objectives of the program, 



95 

materials that can be used as "Science Starters," and 
place of experiences and experiments have been discussed. 

I wish to commend the teachers for the way they have 
cooperated and put into effect the program. 

Our testing program, consisting of Intelligence Tests 
for grades one, three, five and seven, and Achievement 
Tests for all the grades was administered by the teachers 
again this year. The I.Q. test provided a diagnostic evalu- 
ation of the mental abilities of each child; identified out- 
standing pupils of either high or low ability who need 
special educational procedures; and enabled the teacher 
to understand the general mental level of the Class as a 
guide in the selection of instructional materials and ex- 
periences. 

The teachers by making use of the Achievement tests 
results were able to discover the difficulties and shortages 
of each child in the skills which are essential for success 
in pupil activities. The results also provided a basis for 
planning a remedial program to meet the needs of the 
students, and a basis for grouping them according to 
their needs for remedial instruction. The tests revealed to 
the pupils those skills in which they needed special work. 

Tests are a means of finding out what is happening 
to pupils in order that further progress may be made. The 
emphasis on the individual requires not only a general 
knowledge of what is happening to the group, but also 
specific knowledge for each individual. As devices for ob- 
taining such information, the I.Q. and Achievement Tests 
are of primary importance in the evaluation program of 
the school. 

ORGANIZATION 

Our curriculum underwent several changes with the 
beginning of the school year in September. Science was 
placed in the primary and intermediate grades, meeting- 
three times a week for 30 minutes each period. A Conversa- 
tion Period and Educational Games Period were added to 
the curriculum. It is felt that with these additions the 
school is meeting the needs of the student body better 
than before. 



96 

The Science Program is based on the experimental 
method, plus some supplementary reading, field trips, and 
much observation. It is directed at those scientific matters 
which confront the child as he grows and which will affect 
his daily life. It is hoped, by the sixth grade, that the pupil 
will have a fundamental grounding in the physical and 
biological sciences that will give him a better understand- 
ing of the world he lives in. 

An evaluation of the program was made at the half 
year, and the necessary adjustments, as proposed by the 
teachers, were made so that the program would function 
better and the desired goals attained. 

The Conversation Period which meets once a week, 
the pupils in an informal setting, talk on a topic of their 
choice. Grammar, good usage, and vocabulary are checked 
by the teacher. The students are thus given an opportun- 
ity to speak and improve their speech. The teachers con- 
cur with me in stating that this addition to our curriculum 
has been very beneficial to our pupils. 

Educational Games, reviewing the school work of the 
week, are played the last period on Friday, whenever there 
is no General Assembly. These games have a twofold pur- 
pose: they not only strengthen in the minds of the child- 
ren the areas covered during the week but also they in- 
dicate to the teachers and pupils the topics that need to 
be re-taught and learned. 

Social parties, plays, musicals, and athletics have 
played an important part in giving our students a well- 
rounded educational program. Through these activities 
plus their academic subjects the school aims to educate 
the whole child, mentally, socially, morally, and physical- 
ly. 

In closing, I wish to thank the School Board, Super- 
intendent, the Teachers of North Walpole and the citizens 
of the town for their cooperation and support the past 
year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOSEPH Z. DURE, Principal

PRINCIPALS' REPORT 
WALPOLE VILLAGE SCHOOLS 



Mr. Elliot Keach 
Superintendent of Schools 
Walpole, New Hampshire 
Dear Mr. Keach 

I herewith submit my annual report 
Organization: 

The organization of the schools remains basically 
the same as previous years. Grades kindergarten through 
three are housed in the new elementary school. 

Grades four through twelve are housed in the larger 
building. Grades four through six have been re-organized 
this year by grouping the children homogenously. The 
bases used to group them were the results of the Cali- 
fornia Achievement Tests and the Scholastic Ability Tests. 
Indications are that the plan has worked out very satis- 
factorily. I wish to take this opportunity to personally 
thank both teachers, pupils, and parents of the inter- 
mediate grades for their cooperation in making this plan 
successful. 

It is planned to supplement the present course of 
studies by offering an enrichment program to the stu- 
dents in grades four, five and six. The program is in the 
formulative stage at the present time but it is the inten- 
tion to include studies of about six to eight weeks dura- 
tion in such areas as mechanics of expression, oral and 
written, typing, mathematics, classical literature and 
possibly languages. Miss Rising will be the instructor in 
this program. Since this will be a new activity in the sys- 
tem, it will be necessary to operate in a flexible manner 
until we are able to determine exactly in which supple- 
mental areas we should concentrate our efforts. It is not 
intended that this should become a remedial program but 
rather one for enlargement of skills. 

Grades seven through twelve are also arranged 
homogenously and housed in the remainder of the school. 

The operating schedule for the junior and senior high 



98 

school is divided into eight forty-five minute periods this 
year which allows us to meet the suggested state stand- 
ards of two hundred and twenty-five minutes for such 
classes as English and mathematics. The other require- 
ments for class time are met with this type of schedule. 
Period eight is generally devoted to activities such as 
band, chorus, Thespian Club, personal typing, and 
Science Club. Assemblies, class meetings, and the year- 
book meet on alternate Thursdays, period eight. 

Music Department: Our music supervision for the 
kindergarten-twelve has been developing the fundamen- 
tals of music, vocal, and instrumental in grades kinder- 
garten-four, grades six-eight through musical projects. 
In grades nine-twelve the emphasis has been on the 
chorus and band. The interest developed in the band has 
been very evident by their appearance at the soccer and 
basketball games. 

The music organization has started a fund for the 
purpose of buying new uniforms for the band. The pro- 
ject probably will take two years to realize its goal due 
to the large sum required to outfit approximately forty 
members. 

The department has started the formation of a mu- 
sical library available to the district. 

ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT: Soccer was introduced 
this year and we competed in the Southwestern League. 
We had an effective first year team that won a fair share 
of its games. Physical Fitness Tests were also used during 
the physical education period for boys this year. Con- 
siderable interest and accomplishment was shown by the 
larger per cent of the boys who participated. It is planned 
to continue this testing program on the basis of three 
times per year and to include a testing program for the 
high school girls. 

LIBRARY: Our library area has made considerable 
gains this past year. Several additional reference volumes 
were added, namely the Dictionary of American Bio- 
graphies, The Collier's Encyclodedias, The Childcraft En- 
cyclopedias, as well as a large number of science and 



99 

mathematics reference books. We also have received num- 
erous books as gifts from Mr. Kolvoord, Mr. Cabot, Mr. 
and Mrs. Brennan, Mr. and Mrs. Hoyt, Mrs. Macnaughtan, 
and students. 

Nearly all of the books have been catalogued and 
properly shelved according to the Dewey Decimal System. 
This was accomplished mainly through the voluntary 
efforts of Mrs, Harris, Mrs. Buttrick, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. 
Andros, Mrs. Macnaughtan, and several students. 

Contributions by the P.T.A., D.A.R., and N.P. Club 
have been appreciated and have made it possible for us 
to expand this supplemental educational area. 

It is planned to continue the general expansion of 
the library facilities at least one more year and then add 
volumes on a more selective basis. The fictional area as 
well as the non-fictional area needs considerable strength- 
ening. 

It also seems pertinent to point out that when an 
addition to the building is planned that it should include 
an area that would be considerably larger than the pres- 
ent library. This will provide space for individual study 
and provide a reading room. 

Arrangements have been made through Miss Graves, 
the town librarian, whereby our elementary grades may 
have the advantages of the services given by the area 
bookmobile. It is hoped that the arrangement will work 
out satisfactorily and that we can further supplement 
our elementary library program. 

We also have been able to avail ourselves of the State 
Science Traveling Library and the Red Cross Library 
kits which are loaned to schools on a rotating basis. Stu- 
dents and teachers also have made use of the state li- 
brary lending system to schools. 

GUIDANCE: This year we have been able to establish 
the guidance phase of the educational system as a sep- 
arate department. The guidance director has been devot- 
ing the majority of his time counseling the senior students 
regarding their future academic and vocational plans. 
The nature of his position makes it necessary for him to 



100 

spend considerable time becoming familiar with the ad- 
mission requirements of the post secondary schools, deter- 
mining if students qualify, and then making arrange- 
ments for conferences between the students, parents, and 
school officials concerned. 

Vocationally speaking it is necessary for him to fol- 
low about the same procedure with slight variations. 

At the present time he is interviewing and scheduling 
the probable incoming freshmen in their course selec- 
tions for next year. 

Another phase of his work has been arranging the 
University of New Hampshire test battery for the fresh- 
men, sophomores, and juniors. He also arranged for the 
College Board Qualifying Test which was given to the jun- 
iors and seniors. The interpretation of these test results to 
the students and parents also is an important duty of the 
guidance department. 

VOCATIONAL AREAS: There are 93 students en- 
rolled in the Home Economics, Vocational, Agriculture, 
and Commercial Courses. This means that 71 per cent of 
our total student body are participating in this area. With 
the emphasis on the academic courses i.e. mathematics, 
science, and languages, we must not lose sight of this so 
called teminal area and the important part it contributes 
to students enrolled there. 

A ten year study has been made in regard to the 
number of students enrolled in the Vocational Agriculture 
courses. The results are on file in the office. 

A course in Personal Typing has been started this 
year for students who are unable to take Typing I and 
wish to learn the fundamentals of typing. There are six- 
teen pupils enrolled in this non-credit, twice a week course 
which is offered period eight. 

CURRICULUM CHANGES: This year we offered 
Physics and Chemistry simultaneously rather than on an 
alternating basis. Including General Science and Biology 
there are a total number of 70 students enrolled in science 
courses which is 54 per cent of the student body. 
The mathematics area was expanded in this course in 



101 

General Mathematics this year and there are 25 students 
enrolled in this course. Algebra I, Algebra II. Geometry, 
and Senior Mathematics were also scheduled this year. 
There are 105 students enrolled in these courses which is 
81 per cent of the student body. 

It is planned to offer advanced mathematics or 
trigonometry, solid geometry, and fundamentals of 
analytical geometry, on a non-alternating basis next 
year. This completes the plans, made several years ago, 
to obtain the desired sequence of courses in the mathe- 
matics department. 

The foreign language department offerings this year 
included Latin I, Latin II, and French I. There are 37 
students enrolled in these courses which is 21 per cent of 
the student body. 

It is planned to offer Latin I, II, French I, II, and 
III next year and do away with the alternation in this 
department. In order to develop a sequencial nature to 
these courses, it is planned that Latin I will be available 
to the freshmen, Latin II and French I to the sophomores, 
French II to the juniors, and French III to the seniors. Of 
course the upper classmen may take Latin I, II, or French 
I if scheduling permits, but it will be recommended that 
they enroll in the course planned for the year in which 
it should be taken for the best sequence. 

Public Speaking was introduced this year as an ad- 
dition to our English department. There are 7 students 
enrolled in it and it is offered on a non-credit basis twice 
a week. It is hoped that additional students will avail 
themselves of this course next year. 

SOCIAL SCIENCES: The courses offered in this area 
are Civics and Youth Problems, World History, Psychology 
and Sociology, Economics, United States History and Con- 
temporary Problems. The number of students enrolled 
are 81 which is 62 per cent of the student body. 

New maps have been purchased as aids to this pro- 
gram and we have also subscribed to The Science Re- 
search Associates Inc. Foreign Relations Project. The pro- 
ject is a supplemental study carried on by experts and 



102 

enables the students to enrich their understanding of 
associated social science topics. The topics studied by 
this method to date have been, OUR AMERICAN FOR- 
EIGN POLICY, and THE AMERICAN POLICY AND THE 
SOVIET CHALLENGE. 

SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM: There were approxi- 
mately 382 students purchasing the daily meals at the 
cafeteria for the year 1957-58. It has become necessary to 
increase the price of the daily meal to off-set rising operat- 
ing costs. The costs were mostly due to the lack of gov- 
ernment surplus foods to the program, especially the pro- 
tein foods. 

The following summary figures are given to show the 
comparison between the years 1956-57 and 1957-58, as of 
June 11, 1958. 

Total Total Total 

Receipts Expenditures Reimburse. 
1956-57 $20,930 82 $20,641 33 $3,259 76 

1957-58 20,232 43 22,599 55 2,646 17 

EVALUATION: As a member of the New England As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools it will be- 
come necessary next year to begin the self-evaluation of 
the school. This evaluation is a process designed to en- 
able us to compare the school, in a great many aspects, to 
an evaluation list compiled by the N.E.A.C. and S.S. The 
list has been used successfully in a large number of 
schools in New England. 

When our own evaluation is complete, the N.E.A.C. 
and S.S. will send a team of educators to the school in 
order to evaluate the evalution made by the staff. The 
usual length of time involved in the self-evaluation and 
the committee evaluation consumes approximately one 
and a half school years. 

This evaluation is not connected in any manner with 
the state minimum standards program. It is much more 
complete and exacting than that evaluation. 

GRADUATES: Last June eleventh, twenty seniors 
received their diplomas. At the time, it was stated that: 
a) 25% intended to enroll in four year colleges.

A school is evaluated many times by the number of 
students who enroll in four year colleges. The state aver- 
ages of graduating students enrolling in four year col- 
leges for the years 1955 through 1957 are as follows: 1957- 
24%, 1956-24%, 1955-23%. I feel that it is necessary to 
again point out that our percentage is above the state 
average in this respect. 

It also is interesting to note that when using the 
criteria of whether students continue their education af- 
ter commencement, that the percentage is increased to 
fifty-five per cent. (The state percentage is 38-40%) 
This figure increases or decreases based on the criterion 
used in evaluation. 

There are many other aspects by which a school may 
be evaluated but in the final analysis it seems fair to 
endeavor to evaluate a school on a basis such as is used by 
the New England Association of Colleges and Secondary 
Schools. Their evaluative criteria have been developed by 
educational experts and have been used quite extensively 
throughout the country. 

I would also like to mention that a worthwhile study 
could be made, in conjunction with the guidance depart- 
ment and some community organizations, in regard to 
what further financial assistance might become available 
to worthy students desirous of continuing their education 
but without sufficient means to do it. 

FACULTY MEETINGS: Faculty meetings are held en 
a bi-weekly basis. The teachers meet in three groups, 
kindergarten through third grade, fourth grade through 
sixth grade, and seventh grade through twelfth grade. 
Occasionally we meet in one large group to discuss items 
that are pertinent to all three groups. 



104 

Some of the topics discussed and studied to date have 
been report cards, marking methods, citizenship charac- 
teristics, assemblies, mechanics of school operation, the 
library, and enrichment programs. 

IN SUMMARY: It is my opinion that the community 
should be justly proud of its schools and the opportunities 
provided by them. 

My last report mentioned that it is a constant process 
in education to continually evaluate the program and, 
with the present interest in education, it seems that this 
is of extreme importance if we are to maintain and de- 
velop the Walpole School System. 

Continuing studies should be made in the following 
areas : 

1. The future educational space needs especially in 
view of a more balanced vocational program assuming 
that present academic plans will be realized. 

2. The salaries paid the employees of the district in 
relation to surrounding communities in order that we 
can be assured that our teaching staffs are receiving re- 
numeration commeasurate with their qualifications and 
duties which will enable us to maintain our staff. 

In closing I wish to thank the superintendent, school 
board, teachers, parents, and the pupils for their co- 
operation this past year. Education has many ramifica- 
tions but when people all work toward the betterment of 
an educational system there is a sense of satisfaction and 
pride that prevails. 

Sincerely yours, 

LAURIE L. HARRIS, JR., 

Principal.

YOU CAN HELP PREVENT FOREST FIRES 

Twenty-five percent of all forest fires in New Hampshire are 
caused from careless debris burning— brush, paper, leaves, grass, etc. 
Most of them are started without the required permit from the local 
forest fire warden. The cost of extinguishing these fires annually 
runs into large sums of money. 

According to law, responsible parties must pay the cost of putting 
them out. In addition, violators may be subject to court prosecution 
with fines running as high as ($200) two-hundred dollars. 

In the interest of fire prevention why not eliminate burning at 
home? Use your town dump. It has been set up for your personal con- 
venience. It provides a suitable place for the disposal of dangerous 
inflammable waste material and other useless items which accumulate 
around the home and local stores; brush, etc. cut on your property. 
Eliminate the hazard of burning yourself. It will be easier for you— ■ 
personally and financially. 

If, however, you do burn on your premises: 

1. Secure a permit from your local forest fire warden— the law 
requires it. 

2. Be sure to properly supervise your burning. Don't leave it. 

3. Make certain your fire is DEAD OUT before leaving it. 

Save yourself much possible difficulty Use your town dump 

Number of local fires 6 
Number of acres burned 3%
